Samba 'stops' access to a file

I am running Samba on Solaris 2.6 and am connecting to it
from Windows NT4.0. Whilst running some Access software
the database is initially accessed without problem but part
way through processing I get the report that the database
file cannot be accessed since it is exclusively opened by
another user. I cannot then read the database at all until
I log out of Windows then back in. All is then well for a
while. The number of times which I can access the database
before I get the error message again seems to be decreasing.
There is no problem with the software when the database is
on a local drive. Nor is there if the database is put on
to an IRIX machine with Samba.
Any comments please?
